France (@1.005) vs Romania (@12.0)

Our Prediction:

France will win

France – Romania Match Prediction | 12-09-2019 14:45

As such, surely it makes the most sense to back a draw in this game at odds of 17/20 withUnibet. However, second place in Group B is likely to finish on six points if Denmark beat Serbia as expected on Sunday, and hosts Italy finished second in Group A with six points too, meaning that losing this game will leave the defeated side on six points and with a good chance of heading out of the tournament.

France are clearly the stronger of the two teams on paper and have shown some resilience in winning their two games so far so if you want to back them to finish the group with the maximum nine points you can do at odds of 7/4 withPaddyPower. Romania on the other hand have already cause two surprises so far at this tournament so if you want to back them to spring another shock here you can get odds of 13/2 withBet365.

Romanias Last 5 games featured 2 wins, 2 draws and a 4-3 defeat at the hands of Ukraine. Also they seem to have a strong defence, besides the Ukraine game, they have not conceded above 1 goal in their last 5 games. Their last 2 games showed they can score easily when the chance presents itself, as they have scored a combination of 8 goals in the 2 games.

There might be a newer match between France vs Romania.

As things stand, both France and Romania have six points on the board, but with only the three group winners progressing alongside the team that finish second with the best record, theres no guarantee that either side will be able to make it through to the semi-finals if they were to lose this match. Now, this has the potential be one of the more farcical games you are ever likely to see in international football.

Andre Schembri is a Malta international who was born in Floriana on May 27, 1986. After spending four seasons at the club he moved to Austria Karnten in 2009 and it has to be noted that he played on loan for the likes of Eintracht Braunschweig and Calr Zeiss Jena during his spell with Marsaxlokk. The experienced attacker scored ten goals in 44 appearances for the club before joining Marsaxlokk in 2005. Schembri started his youth career at his hometown club Floriana, but he played for fellow Maltese side Hibernians at the start of his senior career.

Didier Deschamps men cant afford any complacency in their Euro 2016 opener and they will certainly leave their hearts on the field against Romania. The duo is likely to prove a handful for the opposition back line and we predict that France are going to record a routine win over Anghel Iordanescus men. Olivier Giroud has been scoring goals for fun of late and seeing that Antoine Griezmann returns to contention as well, we believe that there is a big value in betting on the hosts. In their last meeting at the European Championship finals (2008) the two teams played out a goalless draw. Les Tricolores impressed in their final warm-up game before the European Championship finals and they will be looking to build on the 3-0 win over Scotland when they take on Albania at Stade de France on Friday. France kick off their Euro 2016 campaign with a match against Romania.

The Tricolorii went the farthest in 2000, when they were eliminated by Italy in the quarter-finals. Romania made a total of seven appearances at the World Cup finals, while qualifying for five European Championship tournaments. Led by arguably their best ever footballer Gheorghe Hagi, the Tricolorii narrowly missed out on the semi-finals at the 1994 World Cup in the United States, losing to Sweden on penalties.

Excellent displays in Spanish la Liga saw him become a target for a number of top clubs, but he eventually choose to sign for Atletico Madrid, and that proved to be a very good decision. The pacey striker started showing his potential shortly after coming through Real Sociedads youth academy and he went on to score 46 goals in 179 league appearances for La Real. Anthony Griezmann is a French forward born on 21st March 1991 in Macon, and he is widely regarded as one of Europes most exciting footballers at the moment.

France's captain is their goalkeeper, Hugo Lloris, while the first-choice full-backs, Patrice Evra and Bacary Sagna, have plenty of experience at the top level. Didier Deschamps has a couple of big decisions to make regarding his team, particularly on the left wing, where Dimitri Payet and Anthony Martial are battling for one place. Olivier Giroud and Antoine Griezmann will also be in a strong-looking attack, while Paul Pogba, Blaise Matuidi and N'Golo Kante is arguably the best midfield in the tournament too. After Real Madrid defender Raphael Varane was ruled out of Euro 2016 with a thigh injury, Sevilla's Adil Rami was called up and he is expected to partner Laurent Koscielny at the back.France likely XI: Lloris; Sagna, Rami, Koscielny, Evra; Pogba, Kante, Matuidi; Griezmann, Giroud, Payet. The long build-up is finally over and Euro 2016 is finally here, with hosts France getting the tournament underway against Romania.

Romania held France to a 0-0 draw in their last meeting and the same result again on Friday night would be a fantastic result for Iordanescu's men, who may see three draws as their best route into the knock-out rounds of the competition. Only once have the teams played in the European Championship finals before and that solitary fixture came 20 years ago at Euro 2016. That ended in a narrow 1-0 win sealed by a Christophe Dugarry goal, with Deschamps in the France midfield and Iordanescu in the first of his three spells in charge of the Romanian national team. While France go into the curtain-raiser as strong favourites, they have only beaten Romania in one of the last five competitive meetings between the nations, with the other matches all draws.

In this competition, he won his last 6 games and did not lose any of the last 6 that he played as a visitor. His attack has scored regularly, as he has scored goals in 9 of the last 10 games for this competition. There are 2 periods in the last 12 games played for this competition: he suffered 4 of his 7 goals between the minutes (16'-30 ') and 3 of his 7 between (76'-90'). There is a tendency to have goals in their games, because 11 of the last 12 matches that played for this competition ended with over 1.5 goals.
